The North Lincolnshire Local Plan 2020-2038 has been published and shows three potential sites for new residential housing developments in Wroot. However, out of the three areas mentioned, there is only one viable option, which is the site on Field Lane, next to St Pancras Church. The other two, within the village, are outdated proposals and totally unsuitable.
The Field Lane proposal is to build 13-15 houses, but it should be stressed at this stage that it has only been earmarked as a suitable site and no decision has yet been made that building will definitely take place there. Any future development would be subject to the planning process, so the parish council and residents will be duly informed as part of the standard procedure.
Parishioners wishing to view the plan for this site in more detail should head to the Agendas and Minutes page, where it can be found in 'Other Documents'.
A number of consultation events are to be held across North Lincolnshire, where local people can see the plan and speak to council officers. The two in our immediate area are at -
Epworth Imperial Hall: Thursday
11th November, 3.30 pm to 7.15 pm
Haxey Memorial Hall: Monday
15th November 3.00 pm to 7.00 pm
On Wednesday, 22nd September, the Dog Warden from North Lincolnshire Council confronted a dog walker on the river bank near Sand Lane and issued two fixed penalty notices. One for failing to pick up and one for being in control of seven dogs. The local by-laws stipulate 4 dogs maximum. This was a professional dog walker from outside the area, who was driving into Wroot to exercise her dogs along the river bank.
The penalties imposed for dog fouling and for being in charge of more than 4 dogs at a time was £100 for each offence, with no reduction for early payment.
The Dog Warden will continue to make unannounced visits to the area and the Parish Council would like to thank him for his diligence in this matter.

In light of the recent increase in crime around the Isle, the Parish Council, in partnership with Woollas Security, are to install CCTV cameras at a critical road junction in the village. These will be installed adjacent to the village hall and will monitor traffic converging on the junction from Woodside Lane, Field Lane and High Street.
The cameras will record events over 24 hours but will actually be live monitored after 11pm and throughout the night. Any suspicious activity seen during those hours, will be immediately logged and then called in to Humberside Police, if necessary.
The Parish Council would like to congratulate Angela White for 25 years service on the council.
We thank you for your continued service and look forward to many more years serving the village.
A disturbing incident that pet owners in Wroot may want to be aware of. A resident of Wroot took her cat to the vet as he had been limping for a few days. The vet confirmed that he had been shot with an air rifle! This cat does not venture very far ( very much a home cat) so it is a particular worry for the owner. Please be vigilant everyone .

Well done to Wroot Parish Council, whose work to create a wild flower orchard has been recognised with a CPRE Environment Award.
The CPRE, formerly known as the Campaign to Protect Rural England, is an environmental charity with over 40,000 members and supporters.
The wild flower orchard is being created on a formerly neglected patch of land, opposite the allotments on Woodside Lane. Phase one of the project saw the land levelled, cleared of weeds and nettles, with saplings of various blossoming varieties planted. Phase two will see the planting of wild meadow flowers and the installation of a bench and a notice board.
Wroot plans to still hold its traditional Remembrance Service in the village on Sunday 8th November . Arrangements may have to differ slightly from usual due to Covid restrictions , eg no singing of hymns - but details will follow as appropriate nearer the time.
This is in line with the service that will take place in London at the Cenotaph. This may be subject to change to reflect government guidelines.
Fire crews have spent more than 48 hours tackling a moorland fire in a peat bog in South Yorkshire.
About 25 firefighters are still at the blaze is on Hatfield Moors near Doncaster.
The cause is unknown and it is "always difficult to tell" with this type of fire, said South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Firefighters will be at the peatland "probably for a few more days", it added. Drone footage of the fire has been used to help in tackling the blaze.
"People should be super careful when out and about especially on moorlands.
"Please don't take disposable barbeques up there on walks, be careful with cigarette ends and don't leave litter and rubbish lying around", the fire service said.
